Not too bad.
8 April 2006 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

A tamer version of the great Mondo Cane.

This is just a more television friendly version of the Mondo films that were ubiquitous during the time. Most of what's shown can be seen on Discovery channel style documentaries nowadays.

The narrator hams it up a bit but at least he doesn't sound bored or mocking. This one almost reminds you of the films you'd see in school on Friday afternoons. The films your 3rd grade teacher showed just to fill in the time before the weekend while keeping the kids quiet at the same time.

Some of the editing is clunky and one gets the impression a lot of the filming was spur of the moment, but it isn't boring either.

A passable time-waster.
